Perhaps not surprisingly, Australia is the most popular international destination for American Baby Boomers to visit, according to a new survey from AARP Travel.

About 13% of those surveyed say visiting Australia is on their travel bucket list. Italy came in at no. 2, with 12% of those surveyed. And UK-Ireland rounded out the top three.

France ranked fourth among 16 most-popular international destinations for American Baby Boomers in 2017, followed by the Caribbean, Africa continent, Canada, South America, Germany, and Spain.

Baby boomers are the generation born between 1946 and 1964 (they are 53 and 71 years old in 2017), and account for approximately 26% of the total U.S. population.

The study revealed that Baby Boomers will spend an estimated $120 billion annually in leisure travel, and that a whopping 99% of those older Americans surveyed are planning to take a trip next year.
